Welcome to Tattoodo's Harry Potter Week! We kicked things off by sorting all of our employees into houses, which went about as poorly as expected. Then we shined the spotlight on Harry himself, and then hit up the pure nightmare fuel that is the Dementors. Now we look at the lovable house elf, Dobby! Be sure to check back all week for a slew of Hogwarts-centric tattoos.
Dobby is eventually freed, which is nice and all, but then he just ends up working essentially as a slave for Dumbledore at the price of one Galleon a week (which is like $7). Why does Dobby do this? The same reason why recently released prisoners will sometimes commit a crime just to be sent back to prison – the institutionalized life becomes all they know. Living a truly free life is something that Dobby is incapable of because his spirit has been broken by spending so much of his life a slave.
We hope these Dobby tattoos remind you how much you love Harry Potter. That’s the effect they have on us, and let me tell you, we love Harry Potter so, so much.
